When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

December 30, 2014

Your furnace works around the clock during the coldest months. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the chilliest days of the year in Chatsworth. You may not even think about the possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in disaster mode, and that’s not the greatest place to be. The True Temp Heating & Air Inc team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be exhibiting that will let you know it should probably be replaced.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t heating evenly, your furnace may be reaching the end of its lifespan. Sometimes this problem can be solved by making sure your ductwork is properly sealed. Properly sealing your ducts can not only keep your home evenly heated, but it can save your furnace from working harder than it needs to. You could save your furnace and save some money with better energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at True Temp Heating & Air Inc. Some people find that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more often. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t operating as they should be.

Too many repairs

You probably realize that older furnaces often fail, and before that happens they become less and less energy efficient. If you find you’re calling for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to start researching a new system. Waiting on a new purchase could end up costing you more money in the long run.

The average life expectancy of a furnace or boiler is about 15 years. So, if your system is getting older, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Chatsworth, the team at True Temp Heating & Air Inc can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 706-695-7492 to set up an appointment with us.
